KEEPING CAST IRON MANUFACTURING IN THE USA
Since 1901, we’ve been proudly manufacturing high-quality pipe and fittings in the USA, and the new Oakboro Foundry allows us to stay true to this commitment. All the construction materials were 100% made in the USA, and a new foundry enables us to manufacture more pipe and fittings, support more American jobs, and do more work we can be proud of.
